At 5mm x 5mm x 1mm these are the world's smallest addressable pixels.
There is a MAJOR difference between these and the WS2811 and WS2812 pixels that Adafruit or Sparkfun carry - our pixels have a CLOCK and a DATA line, so you can clock your data in at any rate you like, The WS2811/12 pixels only have a data line and you must encode the data in an unusual way, with tight precision. This ties up you controller very tightly - you have to disable everything else while the data is sent out.
These are designed to be mounted onto a SMD circuit board, but they can be hand soldered for small projects - four wires into the pixel and four out. These use the same data protocol as the LPD6803 LED pixels we sell which means they take a 15 bit payload providing a color palette of 32766 colors.
If you look at the product images you'll see the LED itself is in a milky white encapsulant which adds to the quality and visibility of the light produced. At full brightness, these are very bright, a little too bright to comfortably stare at, but not so bright that they instantly blind.
Potential uses include:
- Integration into wearable products such as clothing or jewlery.
- Furniture and architecture.
- LED display screens.
